The newest addition to INSIDE THE NFL, Ray Lewis joins veterans Phil Simms and Boomer Esiason as an analyst during the show’s 10th season on SHOWTIME.
The Baltimore Ravens’ second-ever draft pick, Lewis led the organization to its first two Super Bowls during his NFL career, the entirety of which he spent in Baltimore. The 13-time Pro Bowler finished his career as a Super Bowl MVP and two-time Super Bowl Champion with 2050 combined tackles, 19 forced fumbles and 31 interceptions under his belt. He holds the moniker as one of the most decorated linebackers to ever play in the NFL, and is widely considered to be a top candidate to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 2018 class.
Lewis’s arrival to INSIDE THE NFL coincides with his debut as an analyst on FOX Sports and follows a three-year stint with ESPN, where he was a prominent fixture on SUNDAY NFL COUNTDOWN and MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL.
The 17-year NFL veteran played collegiate football at the University of Miami, where he started the Hurricanes’ final five games as a freshman and was named to the freshman All-American team. In his final two seasons with the Hurricanes, he was named All Big-East, and was a runner-up for The Butkus Award, given to the best linebacker in collegiate football. Lewis holds the school’s individual season record for tackles by a middle linebacker with 160.
Lewis is the father of six children and splits his time between Baltimore, M.D. and Miami, FL.
